my favorite picture of all time
Everything Men’s Rights Activists label as “female privilege” is really patriarchy backfiring against men.
The gender-specific rule that men shouldn’t hit women is caused by the misogynistic belief that women are fragile.
The belief that men can’t be raped is caused by the belief that men always want sex and the belief that men must always be strong, which are the same gender norms that enable men to sexually harass women.
The belief that all men are rapists is caused by the misogynistic belief that a woman who is quick to trust a man is asking for it.
The belief that statutory rape is worse with an older man and a younger woman than with an older woman and a younger man is caused by the misogynistic belief that society must protect female virginity.
Custody favoring the mother is caused by the misogynistic belief that taking care of the kids is a woman’s job.
The fact that only men can be drafted is caused by the misogynistic belief that women are too weak for combat. Also, most feminists are against the draft.
The belief that the man must pay for the date is caused by the misogynistic belief that women are helpless and need men to do everything for them, and it’s often used as a way to guilt-trip her into having sex.
Feminists don’t support any of those. All of those are caused by patriarchy. Men’s Rights Activists can stop blaming feminists for the problems that patriarchy causes.

- Why Internet Jerks Aren’t Going to Win, And You Can Help
Depression Quest designer Zoe Quinn joined me on stage at PAX East 2014 to talk about the Internet, and how we can make things just a tiny bit better. Here’s the full video from that panel, and if you want to listen to an audio version, that’s available here. As someone that struggles with attending PAX, given its history, I try my damndest to do good while I’m there. This panel is part of that.
I just finished the audio version and I really implore anyone who has ever encountered abuse online (which should be 99.9% of you) to take 50 minutes and give this a watch and/or listen. It’s sad that a lot of it may come across as common sense, but the fact that so much of Internet culture has perpetuated the exact opposite of good advice (e.g., “don’t feed the trolls”) just shows how much this is needed.
I really appreciate both Zoe’s and Patrick’s unique situations and the advice they give and I hope more people decide not to let the jerks win.
